Central Colorado Conservancy and partners work to plant 130 trees

In June of this year, Central Colorado Conservancy in partnership with Southwest Conservation Corps, SPOT, GARNA, City of Salida, and Chaffee County planted 130 small trees and shrubs along the Monarch Spur Trail in Salida.

The Southwest Conservation Corps crew did a great job getting everything in the ground before an afternoon thunder and lightning storm. Hopefully, most of the trees and shrubs will take hold and grow providing habitat for songbirds and other wildlife.
